    Stay at Chateau Pitray - Enjoy a Wine Tasting and Cultural Vacation !

    Please contact me to schedule a custom trip - 6 person group minimum

    This trip is born from a rich local knowledge of Bordeaux wines and the Bordeaux region. This part of France has been home to my family for generations, stretching back hundreds of years. I have many relatives who live in this area today, and many who make their living in the wine industry. My goal is to leverage my connections and provide you with a unique and personal experience of the region, its history, and the Bordeaux wine industry, particularly Saint Emilion. The vacation will be unique and personal because you will stay at the Chateau de Pitray, hosted by my aunt and uncle, Count and Countess de Boigne. It will also benefit from the personal and business relationships that many of my relatives - who either grow grapes and make wine or sell and distribute it - have in the wine industry. We will use Chateau de Pitray as a base to examine in detail the grape growing and wine making process, and also learn the fundamentals of wine tasting. From Pitray we will venture out into the region to visit other prestigious vineyards and taste their wines.
